HuffPo: Children’s Christmas Classic “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” Is Racist, Sexist, & Homophobic
“Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” story came from an age when lessons were acknowledged to be painful. Lessons still are painful, but we have forgotten to teach our children that lesson. Life takes a bite out of you sometimes and you must learn how to adapt. It’s about survival & triumphing over our issues.
Kids need to be taught that bad things happen but they can overcome them and have a happy ending. Overcoming, triumphing over our issues is a great lesson for children. It’s needed today more than ever before.
Rudolf was bullied. That’s kinda the point of the story: bullying sucks but, ultimately, the outcast will save the day and be celebrated by all. This has to be a joke, right?
